A&K Top Tip

Short ten minute drive to Gisenyi Volcanic Hot Springs!

Guest Testimonial

I tracked the Susa group which is the one I really wanted to see - it was almost as if gorillas were tumbling out of every bush, shrub and even at times they seemed to fall from the sky.

- MM, Edinburgh



Lake Kivu Serena Hotel is ideally located on a sandy beach, in the Rwandan resort town of Gisenyi, on the shores of Lake Kivu, the 6th largest lake in Africa. The nearby Virunga Volcanoes provide a spectacular backdrop on one side complimenting a panoramic view of the lake on the other.

Weather

The driest months in Rwanda are between July and September and from December to January. The rains tend to fall between April and May and then again from October to November. However, trekking for gorillas involves entering the rainforests so you need to be prepared to get wet and muddy most of the year.
